Tour of Your Doll World

I had an idea. Vanessa from Van's Doll Treasures suggested that I do a video of my house move/doll reorganization project.

Okay I'm not a Christian or a housewife but I am a sucker for super conservative Christian stay at home mommy blogs! The ones that bake their own bread and make kefir and home school their kids? Love them!

Here's an example. This is Candy. Poor thing is always disappearing from the blogosphere because she gets really harassed and stalked. Her perfection really pisses people off. Her insane organization and natural cleaning products have changed my household for life.

Anyway if you look on the left frame she encourages the other Christian Homemaker bloggers to do a tour of their homes. I'm come from a tribe of home-lookers. We want to view homes even if we're not looking for a home. We're dreamers. So I love this feature.

So what if we do this? Not our homes but our doll spaces. Would you guys join me?

The house is not definite yet (it is in my heart), but even WHEN everything goes through it won't be for another 2 weeks. I'll do a post then and ask you to do it as well. I think I'll do a Before and an After. I'll show you how I *cough* organize my doll world. Hey look, I said I love to organize. I didn't tell you I had the capacity to STAY organized. Because I don't.

So whaddya think? Will you be joining me? Will you give me permission to put the link on my blog like Candy?


  1. Hahahaha..not gonna happen on my end. I have a loooooonnnnnng way to go before I get a doll space. I hope to get it partly done while I'm at home but NO VIDEO, PICTURES are coming from me other than the mess on my page. Love ya like a play cousin but this mess will not be televised.

    I will watch yours and are you sure this Candy is for real? No disrespect but even the mighty MS had to admit she was getting help :O)

  2. hahah! You are killin' me! Who is the mighty MS? I appreciate your honesty! I did see your doll space the other day. No judgment!

    I think Candy has a moment by moment breakdown of what she does all day. I want so much to believe it!

  3. Martha Stewart is the might MS..LOL. I only mean that in my disorder of non-organization that those who can do this have my utmost respect. I aspire to be at a happy medium of organization. I was following the Fly Lady who had me start with 15 mins and get the time higher everytime to organize and clean your spaces.

    I'm thankful I'm not a hoarder and can let things go. I may post a pic or 2 of my progress. That before and after is a beautiful thing :O)

  4. Dani, darling, I suggested you do it, so those of us who don't get the same thrill from organizing that you do, could perhaps benefit from your joy of doing it. I never said that we would be doing it. Technically, my doll space is not that bad. If I could just figure out how to organize my fabrics in a way that I could still have easy access to them, I would be almost completely organized. My other doll area, my basement, needs to be cleaned and rearranged. My friend had to keep some house stuff down there for the past 7 months or so. They were just retrieved last week, so I can get that space back in order. But if I take time out to organize those 2 spaces so they can be filmed, that will take away from my videos, my furniture, and delay the opening of my food store. Ummmm, not going to happen. Great idea though. I hope you get some takers. That would be really nice to see. Thanks for the shout out!

The Arrival of Kala

My first first-hand BJD has arrived!  She's a Dollmore Keeley Sum purchased through Denver Doll Emporium. She arrived with a broken foot joint so DDE is getting Dollmore to send me another. It was fairly distressing to open the package to THAT surprise, but she's so beautiful, she immediately captured my heart.

I recently made arrangements to sell Sunnie and I can see it is totally for the best. THIS is what a new bjd owner should feel. Something like maternal pride, an obsessive need to care for her.

Her working name is Kala (not Eden anymore). We'll talk about her back story in another post but for now, all you need to know is she's an early Neolithic woman. Here she is wearing a wig by D. Resin on Flickr. She's amazing.

This is Kala's stuff I've been collecting.

Here is a size comparison of the Dollmore Model F body and the older Dream of Teen by Dream of Doll body.

You know me, peeps, I have a need to make doll environments as strongly as my need to h…

So Where Were We?

Hello my friends!

Man I have been slacking. I got so into the Roku situation that I have completely neglected the dolls. And since my car died and I now have a car note, my insane doll shopping spree is at a close. Except I found the 1960s Reading Deluxe Dream Kitchen (minus table and chairs) at a thrift store for $35. Then there was this cute pitcher there (on the dishwasher) and a Gibson guitar, so...(forgive the cellphone pic).

Anyway I hope to getting back to a craft/diorama focus in my doll work.

Can I be honest? I am terrified of my camera. I've avoided it since my last post. Setting up lights takes forever and changing them for every scene and the cords and the scary wiring in this house. Then taking 100 pics and those being all wrong and doing it again after I already took down all the damn lights. Ugh.

So whatever. When I do a glamour shot I'll fiddle with lighting and post production. But for photostories, eff it.

The following shots are done with a flash and auto-f…

BJD: Vinyl to Resin

So I think people really wants to know why I am taking this plunge, or maybe you don't give a crap but I'm going to tell you anyway.

Maturity: Not saying that 1/6th folks aren't mature!!! But there is something very mature about the BJD hobby that is populated with so many young people. Depending on the company or customizations, you may have to wait up to forty effin' weeks. That is how long it takes to make a human. It takes patience. And you're going to take time to make the right choice. I'm resigning myself to not seeing my first doll until my bday in November. The dolls and accessories are not always cheap. You have to budget yourself, save up and earn that dang doll.You need a gentle touch when you're handling these dolls. You can't afford to damage them. They make special travel cases for them! Dropping them could mean seriously damaging a nose. They yellow in time and if you keep them in the sun. You have to find a place to keep them safe.(Crap…
